Famous Blue Raincoat... Just because...

This card won at Simple Doodles , so I'll be GD for February, as well as of January!
The challenge on day 289 at 365
cards was musical:
I've done several challenges in the past, and will do more in the future, that ask you to base your card on a song that I choose. But what if you could choose your own? Which one would it be?
At first, I thought it has to be holiday song, Gloria's card, as a DT, just gave me that impression (great card - just pop to Gloria's blog and see for your self, along with more beautiful cards).
but then I asked Pam, and she said it can be any song that inspires me.
Well, ever since the real winter has begun here, I've been thinking of doing a card inspired by Leonard Cohen's song: "Famous Blue Raincoat", so thank you so much, Pam, for giving me the opportunity :)
Take a moment to hear the song, feel the atmosphere, after all it is "the end of December", and I'm sure "New York is cold"...
and if you ask why... well the answer is in the card... enjoy!
